Prop 27 — The California Solutions to Homelessness and Mental Health Support Act is the only measure on the 2022 ballot that will guarantee hundreds of millions of dollars each year to fight homelessness and fund mental health treatment in California.
Prop 27 achieves this by licensing, tightly regulating, and taxing online sports betting. In 2018, the Supreme Court ruled states could legalize betting on sports, and nearly half of the country has safely authorized online sports betting, generating revenue windfalls to fund state priorities.
State revenue generated by the initiative can only be used to fund homelessness and mental health solutions like permanent shelter and addiction treatment services.
Prop 27 will also generate millions annually to uplift California Tribal nations and their communities via a new, permanent tribal revenue stream.
